I assigned this book to a group of my 6th grade boys with learning disabilities. They loved the book, and I particularly loved the curriculum. It contains chapter by chapter comprehension questions, which are challenging and interesting. It also contains all kinds of interesting projects and activities sorted by disciple. The author has really created a multi-disciplinary curriculum. It is obvious that she has been a teacher for many years. You don't need to do any extra work if you don't have the time, but I supplemented with videos from Youtube, because my students need that visual connection. My one suggestion would be to emphasis the themes of the book more than the author does - When does a boy become a man?, What does taking responsibility for your actions really mean?, What is the Cowboy Mystique? What makes a good parent? What does it mean to project your problems/ unhappiness/negative character traits onto someone else? How do recognize when you are doing this, and how do you handle it when someone else is doing this to you? My students learned a lot, and really enjoyed the book. There was no eye-rolling, moaning or whining when it was time for reading. That is remarkable, because reading has always been such a struggle for my students that they avoid it like the plague. Not so with this book. Many thanks to the author
